Signal handler doesn`t handle any signals while main thread is blocked

Hi!
I waste a lot of my time figuring why this snip of code doesn`t work.
And still without any solution ;/
Does anybody know why this handler cannot handle SIGINT signal? What
did I wrong?

Thanks in advance.

#
# CODE
#
import signal
from threading import *

def siginthandler(s ignum, frame):
global work,cv
print 'terminating... '
cv.acquire()
work = 0
cv.notifyAll ()
cv.release()

work = 1
signal.signal (signal.SIGINT, siginthandler)

print 'wait for SIGINT signal'
cv = Condition ()
cv.acquire()
while work:
print 'waiting...'
cv.wait()
print 'woke up'
cv.release()

print 'terminated'

change cv.wait() to cv.wait(delay) and it will capture the terminate
request and wrap the cv.wait(delay) in a try/except IOError: break
block.
